look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. No freshness date found on bottle.

Appearance: This one was a bit of a gusher when I opened it. Pours a hazy honey gold with a huge 4-5 finger frothy snow white head which dissipates fairly quickly leaving a small ring of white foam on top.

Smell: A nice tart funkiness mixed with sour apples and white wine grapes accompanied by typical German wheat notes and a hint of sweetness.

Taste: Sour funky notes throughout without being overly puckering. There is a nice German wheat character to this one that goes great with the sour fruitiness that comes through. Notes of green apple, lemon and white grapes come through as well. Aftertaste is very light and mildly funky.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied and and crisp with a high amount of prickly carbonation. Very smooth.

Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. This is a very refreshing beer which would be perfect on a hot summer day. You could easily drink multiples without any trouble.

Overall: Excellent beer overall. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and would put it up there with any unflavored Berliner Weisse that I've tried. I would definitely recommend giving this one a try.

Pours a clear yellow with a MASSIVE, billowy white cloud head that overflows the glass. Luckily it dissipates pretty quickly. Aromas of granny smith apples, and a hint of sulfur. Taste begins with some mouth puckering green apple, then a hint of grain, and finishes with a dry, grassy finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light. Overall a fantastic Berliner Weiss, I wish we got more of these over here.
